KIEFER SUTHERLAND SET TO RELEASE SOPHOMORE ALBUM ‘RECKLESS & ME’ WORLDWIDE ON FRIDAY, APRIL 26 VIA BMG LATEST SINGLE, “THIS IS HOW IT’S DONE,” OUT NOW

Kiefer Sutherland is set to release his sophomore full-length album, Reckless & Me, worldwide on Friday, April 26 via BMG. The 10-track Reckless & Me delivers Sutherland’s Americana and country rock-infused songwriting style and highlights his gift of soulful storytelling. Pre-order is available now, here.



The new album holds beautifully arranged ballads and authentic country rockers such as the album’s lead single, “Open Road,” and latest offering, “This Is How It’s Done” – all delivered with Sutherland’s distinctive, whiskey-soaked and gravel-laced voice.



Click here to watch a video incorporating tour footage for “This Is How It’s Done.”



Sutherland’s three-decade, award-winning acting career has made him a familiar face around the globe, but his other passion is music. “I asked myself, says Sutherland, “‘what is the thing that I love about acting, and music?’ ‘What is the common denominator?’ For me it's storytelling and music is a very different way of doing it.”



Produced by Jude Cole, Reckless & Me marks the follow up to Sutherland’s critically acclaimed debut album, Down In A Hole (2016), which had Jill Lawless of Associated Press identifying Sutherland’s “…unexpected, unvarnished authenticity as a singer/songwriter.” Consequence of Sound’s Collin Brennan simply raved Down In A Hole is a “…boozy, bad-ass country album.”



Now returning with Reckless & Me, Sutherland wants to keep touring and sharing these songs with his fans. Though he loves writing and recording, the stage holds a special place in his heart, and for the last three years, he’s toured extensively earning a reputation as a relentless road warrior.



"I couldn't have imagined the depth with which I have fallen in love with touring,” says Sutherland. “To have the opportunity to convey intimate, personal stories to an audience has proven to be priceless.”



U.S. tour dates are expected to be announced soon.



Track listing for Reckless & Me: “Open Road “ “Something You Love” “Faded Pair of Blue Jeans” “Reckless & Me” “Blame It on Your Heart” “This Is How It’s Done” “Agave” “Run to Him” “Saskatchewan” “Song for a Daughter”

More fun facts on Billy Bob's Texas...

A Little Bit Rock & Roll While Billy Bob’s is known for hosting the biggest stars in country music, it also hosts Rock ‘n’ Roll & Pop Music stars. Ringo Starr, .38 Special, Men At Work, The Go-Go’s, Steppenwolf, REO Speedwagon, Styx, The Doobie Brothers, Jackyl, KC and the Sunshine Band, Pat Benatar, Heart, and ZZ Top have all performed at the World’s Largest Honky Tonk. Even Ray Charles and Bob Hope have taken the stage at Billy Bob’s Texas.

The Stars at Night, Are Big & Bright! Billy Bob’s is known for discovering new talent. In one weekend in 1982, it paid Reba McEntire $3,500 on a Friday, and George Strait $4,500 on a Saturday – a fraction of what those performers command today.

Real Bulls, Real Action Billy Bob’s Live Pro Bull Riding takes place every Friday and Saturday night. We’re talking real bulls- not mechanical! Billy Bob’s also offers our guests a chance to be a rodeo star by providing an authentic stuffed bull photo opportunity as if they were part of the live action.

Lights, Camera, Honky Tonk! Billy Bob's Texas has been featured in many acclaimed films, including Pure Country starring George Straight, Baja Oklahoma starring Lesley Ann Warren, Peter Coyote and Willie Nelson. In Addition, Billy Bob's Texas can be seen in reruns of many episodes of Dallas and Walker, Texas Ranger.

About Billy Bob's Texas: In 1980, at the height of the Urban Cowboy craze, the idea for Billy Bob's Texas was born. Billy Bob Barnett and Spencer Taylor plotted what to do with a 100,000-square-foot department store that was closed and for sale. Barnett knew that the authenticity of the Stockyards and the size of the space would lend itself well to a nightclub. They hired a crew of 80 and set to work. Billy Bob was hesitant to make a commitment about when the club would open. He set the date for April 1, 1981. A fallback plan, if everything fell through, would be "April Fools!"

Originally, the idea was to capitalize on the popularity of local musician Jerry Max Lane by naming the club "Jerry Max's Texas," but when legal barriers of licensing that name began to surface, Billy Bob added his own namesake to the club and "Billy Bob's Texas" was born.

KACEY MUSGRAVES DATES ADDED ON SOLD-OUT HEADLINING OH, WHAT A WORLD: TOUR

Due to overwhelming demand, multiple GRAMMY award-winning singer/songwriter Kacey Musgraves has added 17 new North American shows to her sold-out Oh, What a World: Tour. Following her previously announced tour dates, Kacey will hit the summer festival circuit, becoming the first-ever female country artist to play Coachella, and will then launch the second North American leg of her tour on August 24th at Vina Robles Amphitheatre in Paso Robles, CA. These new dates, produced by Live Nation, will include returns to major cities such as Phoenix, Philadelphia, Boston, and Toronto, and will make stops in Santa Fe, Charlotte, and New Orleans, among others (see below for full list of tour dates). For tickets go to http://www.kaceymusgraves.com/tour.




Over the past year, Kacey has toured extensively in support of Golden Hour to massive critical reception, with NPR aptly summarizing, “Kacey Musgraves is magnetic – there are no two ways about it.” One month into the sold-out North American leg of her Oh, What a World: Tour, Kacey has dazzled press and fans alike. Billboard declared, “leaving the packed theatre would have anyone convinced: Musgraves isn't just breaking country's rules, but re-writing them,” Rolling Stone observed, “with each successive record, culminating in the velvety and confident Golden Hour, Musgraves has expanded both her sonics and her fan base,” and Variety enthused, “considering her gradual but inexorable rise over the past five years; considering the accessibility, intelligence, humor, positivity and wide appeal of her songs; considering the praise heaped upon her by critics (not to mention her two GRAMMY wins and the four nominations for her latest album, “Golden Hour“); and considering, most of all, the rapturous response she receives from her fans, it’s hard to imagine that within the next couple of years Kacey Musgraves won’t be one of the biggest stars in music.”



Golden Hour has been named Apple Music’s Global Album of the Year, and has been hailed as of the best albums of 2018 by everyone from NPR, Time, Rolling Stone, Billboard, Pitchfork, Entertainment Weekly, Esquire, Complex, Consequence of Sound, USA Today, Noisey, People, and Vulture, among others. Stereogum proclaims, “again and again, the album makes the incredible feel as natural as breathing,” and The Associated Press assures, “Golden Hour will put a smile on your face, and live inside of your heart.”
